Oddly enough I didn't get heavily into Star Wars until about 10-11 years ago when I was 16.



    I'll admit when I saw the movie a few years I thought to myself "they didn't need to make him look like a monster since a normal Howie Mandel coming out from under your bed would be utterly terrifying".
    I remember when seeing the ending of Little Monsters as a kid my first reaction was" What happened?" really it's like the film just ran out of time and they couldn't provide a proper ending.

    Sadly I never got a chance to see the original trilogy in theaters as a kid either, mainly due to the fact that I was still too young to really appreciate them.

    Do you remember having LBT and Oliver with Batman merchandise? i had LBT t-shirt with PJs plus coloring books, stuffed Petrie, Pizza Hut puppets and that. I have Oliver stuff like a couple of t-shirts, PJs, the soundtrack on CD which i still own as it was my first CD as i dig Billy Joel/Huey Lewis music, stuffed Oliver, readalong with cassette, junior novel, Mcdonalds toys, mcdonalds ornuments, a jar with Oliver and Dodger on it, boardgame and all that. I had nearly all the Batman merchandise including the movie magazine to the cards plus i ate the cereal and got the video game for NES with the movie for Christmas the year it came out.

    We were too poor to go to the movies when I was a kid, so we had to wait to get them on home video. So I had to witness box office hits like Batman, Back to the Future I, II, & III, Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones, etc. on my dad's VCR. Ah, the '80's...

    Was it Look Who's Talking that opened with sperm swimming? Because whatever movie that was I got dragged to the theater at a REALLY young age to see it, we walked in when that scene was happening and in a packed theater I shouted: "LOOK, TADPOLES!"

    also, didn't see this one in theatres, but was on the film set of a Tom Selleck film that was being shot in the summer of 83 in London. Our family walked into what we thought was a huge market, but it was a fake market, with Tom getting ready to ride through it on a motorbike, so we walked into the middle of that. But they were very nice about it, Tom Selleck sat down next to me and talked to me, gave me his autograph.
